400 cid Pontiac project car

This Firebird closed with zero bids on eBay recently. Probably because the seller had his reserve set at a ridiculous $15,000. Yes it’s a convertible Firebird and a desirable year at that, but there’s still a ton of work to do on this car. The sales pitch was that it just needed “a good power wash” and that “with a paint job and minor repairs you’d have a $30,000 car!” Yeah, right. If it was that easy then why doesn’t the seller do it and rake in the cash?

The body does look to be in decent shape without much rust. All the major body panels appear solid and without significant dents or wrinkles. Just a little surface rust, which hopefully hasn’t creeped any deeper. The convertible top is missing several key pieces, but otherwise most of the parts seem to be intact. The 400 cid motor has been rebuilt, but not yet driven. Depending on how long ago that was there could still be quite a few bugs to work out of that drivetrain. Hopefully the seller comes to his senses on the price and someone can buy this project and get her back on the road again soon.
